School Holidays in Pembrokeshire - Where To Visit
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path is one of Britain's National Trails. There are three national trails in Wales, The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, Offa's Dyke and Glyndwr's Way.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path ranges from steep limestone cliffs, undulating red sandstone bays, volcanic headlands and flooded glacial valleys. There are also some beautiful quaint towns and villages to explore, rest and recuperate in; essential for getting your breath back after experiencing some of the coastal views on offer.
The county of Pembrokeshire is an area of rugged landscape and craggy coastlines which form the most westerly point in Wales. Taking its name from the old Welsh ‘Penfro', which means ‘land at the end', this area of Wales is a beautiful county rich in history and a popular UK holiday destination for families.
Mile for mile, Wales has more castles than anywhere else in the UK and this is certainly true of Pembrokeshire. There are 51 forts and castles in this county alone making Pembrokeshire holidays stand out when it comes to history and culture.
Although many of these castles are ruins, there are others which offer guided tours of the preserved interiors. Picton Castle near Haverfordwest runs tours of the castle and gardens, including a maze and children's nature trail. Perhaps the most spectacular castle in Pembrokeshire is St. David's Bishops Palace.
St. David's is the smallest city in Britain and St. David's Cathedral alone is an awe inspiring building, but the site also includes the ruins of the monastery.
It comes as no surprise, with so much natural beauty, that this area of Wales attracts a high proportion of artists. Pembrokeshire has many art galleries, which tend to be small independent exhibitions showing local artists who are inspired by the landscape around them.

Pembrokeshire also has a large quantity of wildlife centres and animal parks. One of the most unusual of all the animal attractions and particularly appealing to young children is Dyfed Shire Horse Farm.
